Stayed at the Golden Spruce Motel as part of our book pilgrimage and I wouldn't have picked it if not for the name. My wife would have killed me if I took her here but travelling with a buddy kept the complaints down. The room we stayed in looked like it hadn't had a proper cleaning in 50 years. The... More

We stayed at the Golden Spruce Motel, as it is right along highway 16 and it is halfway up the island, so you can go all the way north or south in about 45 minutes. We got a kitchenette suite with three beds - two twin and one double. The double bed was in the same room as the kitchen... More

We didn't plan our trip all that great for the last week. Called the motel later on in the day and were able to get the last room in the motel which needed to be cleaned before we arrived. We got there to be greeted by Urse and Diane. We ended up stay the whole week and with advise from... More

Urs, the owner, is an excellent chef and will make breakfast for guests, take them fishing for salmon and halibut as well as provide helpful advice for sight seers. It is an older motel, in need of a few renovations but it's central location and Urs' and Diana's hospitality more than make up for the aged look. Kitchenettes are fully... More

We use the Golden Spruce as our home on Haida Gwaii for our forestry crew every year. Urs is a very hospitable host. He is a text book on the Islands and has his own very nice fishing boat available for exclusive charters, and the know how to catch fish safely in a beautiful but unforgiving environment. A greta option... More

My wife and I spent a week in the Queen Charlotte Islands/ Haida Gwaii, with Port Clements as our base. The owner of the Golden Spruce (Urs) was very friendly and treated us like family, very knowledgeable about the outdoors and surrounding attractions . We enjoyed our room that had a kitchen, various amenities (such as laundry etc.). This motel... More

This place is dirty and the owner is rude. My room smelled like logger sweat and saw dust. The owner didn't even want to give us a fishing license. This place is long overdue for a renovation. The owner advertises showers but good luck trying to get one. Really gives Port Clements a bad name. His only income comes from... More

I recently had the displeasure of spending a night at the Golden Spruce Motel. I realize the motel is very old but that is no excuse for the horrible smell ..the lumpy dirty carpet...and the suspected rat droppings. To put it mildly i could not wait to get out of there. I would not recommend this motel ever! And it... More

Our room was #12, which actually was a suite. It had a full kitchen, separate bedroom and a nice dining area. The wood furniture was all imported from Europe which made it very homey. The owner presented himself in a very friendly and accommodating way. Travelers who come to this wonderful island should be aware of where they are. There... More

This place has kitchenettes, which is nice when there is only a pub in town. BUT it's old and dirty! The housekeeping is less than acceptable, they have left me without toilet paper for a day, no grabage bag, they don't bother to vaccume (unless I ask). The cupboards are gross, I feel like I have to clean the dishes... More
